Decision Time

Did I go to the gym? Yes. Did I think about the book? Yes Yes Yes!

So as much as I want my character to be a piece of meat (quite literally) I really must think about it’s audience (7-11 year olds) and from a writing course I did a couple of years ago the character must be relatable and children relate more with animal types than something as obscure as a piece of ham. That has to be the way this book will be written.

This changes some things that have been written but I can make it work logically, it’s purpose is still intact and it doesn’t affect the antagonist, which was the main worry.

I didn’t think about the inciting incident, just wasn’t in that zone tonight.



"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
